bad form, but had to share

Postby alexanderthesoso » Sat Sep 11, 2010 8:28 pm

So, came up with a gag that would lose me SO much style, but had to share here. My characters name is S'Alee (saw ah lee) but its already being shortened to simply sah lee . I had a mental conversation about introducing myself as S'Alee steele, son of s'alee, son of s'alee, son of s'alee . Therefore, I am S'alee the fourth, though my family simply calls me.... S'alee forth. :lol:

My wife says, "Kill it! Kill it! That's so bad it needs to die."

Me, I just groaned and showed it to the wife...

With puns, its a matter of knowing your audience. For example, at last game, when John first announced the impending storm, i shoved a fist in my mouth to keep from shouting, "So, is that our distant early warning?" He MIGHT have giggled and allowed it, but then you never know. (Its a rush album title)

My group turned the big mean ogre into the jolly green giant... so we appreciate puns...

But the timing needs to be right... Of course, we named him rokujin... Green-man 緑人 (pun of land-man and of 6-man, as well). I'm thinking he'll be of clan Ao あお (green).

Note that 緑 has three readings: ryoku, roku, and midori... and can used in names for any. And means (amonst other things) Green.

Bad Form is when the game's mood is broken because of something someone said. And I've given up plenty of style for doing so in my time. It's hard not to, but it's good to keep it in play so as to let the mood remain high and without interruption.

I've gotten into the habit of letting off some of the puns after then game ends so as to keep my pun engine strong and not burst from the pressure. ;)

A pun, no matter how relevant, is still bad form if it causes people to stop, groan, and make obnoxious and vociferous replies out of character... :lol:

Rokujin got me booed at. And something soft thrown my way.

wunderwurks, sounds like a situation tailormade for telepathy, so you could inflict a target with said thoughts. After all, it would be so appropriate to use psi to reduce PSI.


and thus every one has to sigh

Additional bad form. WIth the search on for a suaven that is hidden somewhere, my character has a new quote (not really)

for he is truly his blooded's keeper and the finder of lost Suaven.
